Design Team: Chassis Design in Progress
Starting last week, our design team has been hard at work creating a basis for our robot-the chassis (base). This will decide how we build our placing and climbing mechanisms as a basis for our robots capabilities. We can’t show too much yet, but look forward to prototypes and working designs in the future!
The Design Process:
Fabrication Team: Mock Field Creation
While the Design team fleshes out exact components for the robot and its capabilities, the Fabrication team will create a wooden mockup playing field to test the robot on once it is functioning. They are also providing advice to Design on the complexity of the robot and its plausibility.
Programming Team: Organization and Learning
The programming team has a bit of ways off before they begin working on the robot, but by organizing and creating a GitHub repository they are prepared for the season. They are also training new members in preparation!
Marketing Team: Preseason Hustle
The Marketing team has been very busy in the pre and early season, with the revision of our website, the creation of sponsor documents, keeping social media updated, and raising funds! This will continue into the build season itself as they prepare for the logistical challenge of going to competitions.
